But...most tracks will only allow ROAR approved packs (and rightly so) So we run the Harris 3200's which we've found to be perfect. I don't even bother looking at anything else.
The CORE 3250 lipo fits the M-chassis. Perhaps the CORE pack is really the same as a Yeah or Team C or Harris? I've never seen those.

Team C = Core. Same thing.

Yeah/Core/Harris packs are all exactly the same

Don't forget that the Hobbywing 13T BL is a 380 sized motor in a 540 sized package. It's equivalent to a Mabuchi black can, but much more consistent and reliable.

Top End speed of the Hobbywing is very very similar to a good Sport-Tuned, they do however have quite a bit more torque, so they get there faster...

Most people were using Spice tyres, the Top 5 setups will be on rc-mini tonight probably.

OK wanna know who ran what? Wanna know what the fast guys did to their cars? (i.e. not me...)



The Top 5 cars setups are now on rc-mini. Same page as the rest of the Vic Titles, just down the bottom....

Hi Tony,

Is this the motor/speedo combo you're talking about?

Tony,
39 Mini entries is quite a bunch, but I believe that the Memphis, Tennessee Tamiya TCS of 2008 holds the record for most Minis. There were 68 Minis , we ran 12 cars to a heat and in the mains. Check out the results and TCS pictures at www.msra-racing.com
We run all the Mini entries in the main for club races (which has gone as high as 16 entries). Our series, the Memphis Mini Cup, also runs a 15 minute main.
It is like Mini Heaven.......
